Brentwood Brewery General Franco’s Rebellion (7.4%)

General Franco's RebellionThis is a funny little beer.
Matured for a year, it smells like boozy Coca Cola.
It smells like rum and Coke.
And that’s the backbone of the flavours too.
Plums and treacle, toast and rum and coke.
There’s a little Marmite and some very nice tannin heavy red wine too, and in the background there’s a hint of malt vinegar and then a bunch of dry crunchy red leafy hedgerow hops, pine cones and country walk stiles, nettles and elderflower.
The finish is an oddly satisfying mix of coffee, Coke and red berries, sticky, bitter sweet and lovely.
